Welcome to Oak Class!
Oak is a mixed Year 5/6 class. Here, you will find key information about our class: important timetable information, members of staff and information about what we are learning in class.
The teacher is Mrs Hatch. Mrs Leach and Miss Gleadall are the LSA's in Oak Class.
Our topic during the Autumn term is the Shang Dynasty. We will focus our Literacy work upon our class book Holes, as well as looking at a selection of texts relevant to our topic.
At the beginning of the term, we explored the book 'Shine', focusing upon the key messages within it and producing our own creative writing, linked to the book itself.
In Maths we will be looking at Place Value, before moving on to Addition and Subtraction. We will be working with numbers all the way up to a million and adding/subtracting 6-digit numbers including decimals. As always within our learning in year 5/6, we will be using our mathematical skills and applying them to problem solving and reasoning questions!
More details of our learning throughout this year is available to see on our Parent Forecast.
At Kirkby Avenue Primary School, we recognise the importance of children reading regularly. We encourage children to read three times at home to an adult, three times at home to themselves and three times at school to themselves. Children are rewarded for meeting their reading targets.
P.E and Other Activities
Our P.E day is every Tuesday, but we may have additional opportunities to work and enjoy the fresh air. All P.E lessons will be carried out in a safe way that adheres to all of the guidelines that we must follow. Our P.E lessons will occur weekly on a timetable and will consist of a range of learning that will take place both indoors and outdoors! P.E kits must be brought into school on a Monday and this will need to stay in school all week.
Hi Oak Class! I’m really missing you all and loving the online work that you’re submitting, you’re doing brilliantly.
I’ve made a short video on the division by two numbers that we were looking at just before we locked down. Have a look and see if you can copy my working out. Enjoy, Mrs Hatch 👍🏼
Below will also find some really helpful Maths and Writing Tool Kits, which can be used to help you with your online learning.
The Top Marks Addition and Subtraction tasks are brilliant and some of them have an extra spooky theme for Halloween! Based on the brilliant Maths you've done over the last couple of weeks, I would like you to have a go at some of them, challenge yourself and practise building up speed and accuracy in Addition and Subtraction.
Follow the link below for some spooky Halloween Spelling and Grammar exercises. Remember to challenge yourself as you build up speed and accuracy.
Reading at home
Reading is a fundamental skill and it is incredibly important to continue to read a wide variety of books at home. Whether you are learning from home or in school, it is important to read as much as possible to improve your reading stamina, develop your word knowledge and ultimately enjoy immersing yourself in the wonderful world of story telling.
On the website, there is now a dedicated folder to 'Reading'. It is under 'Parents' and then 'Reading'. This page explains about the Oxford Reading Scheme and gives yourself and your adults useful tips on how to support reading at home. It has some fantastic suggestions of questions to ask when reading at home and offers guidance for parents to feedback to teachers about their child's reading.
PE will be outdoors as much as possible, so we will have chance to practise our athletic skills and ball handling skills as much as possible before the colder weather sets in!
Reading Superstars are always checked weekly by our LSAs.
To become a Reading Superstar - you must read 3 times to yourself in school, 3 times at home and 3 times to an adult at home to reach the superstar goal! There are prizes for children that reach this target every week in a half-term and also termly so get reading!
Times Tables Rock Stars
The children love TT Rockstars! We are continuing our daily 'Times Tables Rock Stars' sessions. Remember, you can use your login at home to work on your skills and challenge staff and children, if you haven't logged in at home yet, try and have a go! We have been really impressed with many children from our class using this at home - we love the fact that you are challenging members of staff too!
